Flouride Treatment in Fairfax VA

Our Dentist, Dr. Le recommends professional fluoride treatments in our dental office because Fluoride is the most effective agent available to help prevent tooth decay.


Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is present in almost all foods and water supplies in varying quantities.  Research by many health and professional organizations has shown numerous benefits of fluoride for more many decades. The amount of natural obtained fluoride is  not enough to help prevent tooth decay.

Topical Fluoride Treatment
Topical fluoride will strengthen the teeth by seeping into the outer tooth surface which makes it more decay resistant. It is usually gained from mouth rinses, oral gels and tooth paste. Our dentists recommend that children receive a professional topical application of fluoride during regular dental check-ups twice a year.


We gain systemic fluoride from foods and fluoridated water supplies. Our dentist at My Fairfax Dental, Fairfax VA can also prescribe it as a supplement in drop or gel form.


Moderation of fluoride is necessary for children, as too much can result in a condition known as : fluorosis (white spots develop on the teeth). Your dentists at My Fairfax Dental will be able to answer questions during your dental visit.


Remember, fluoride alone will not prevent tooth decay

Our dentist’s recommend that you always brush at least twice a day and floss regularly, eat balanced meals and visit your dentist at My Fairfax Dental on a regular basis.
